Clueless Blue Donkey’s In Clark County

by lewwaters

I am always amazed at just how clueless and spiteful Democrats can be. Maybe because for the first half of my life, I was a Democrat, born and raised into a staunchly Democrat household in South Florida.

I’ve watched as they high jacked the Civil Rights movement they so strongly fought against and filibustered in the 1960’s and even how they coerce a Republican President into how necessary tax increases are only to use that tax increase they pushed for as a campaign gimmick against that same Republican President.

I guess it should have come as no surprise to see that same level of cluelessness coming out of the chair of the Clark County Democrat Party, Dena Horton into today’s Columbian.

While Ms. Horton may have a short leg to stand on in complaining about Ann Donnelly’s description of the Blue Jackasses convention (I wasn’t there so I don’t know), her other vitriolic ramblings are remarkably clueless.

Horton brays, “The Columbian is often accused of being a ‘liberal rag’ by the conservatives, which the Clark County Democrats find baffling when The Columbian continues to print columns by conservative columnist Ann Donnelly while offering no alternative view as a counterpoint.

I am left wondering just how many John Laird’s, Lou Brancaccio’s, Tom Koenninger’s and Kathie Durbin’s must the Columbian publish to equate one Ann Donnelly column every other week in Horton’s world?

Laird runs a weekly column that I have yet to see any pro-conservative stance ever taken. Brancaccio is more even handed, but definitely leans left. Koenninger leans further left and I doubt Kathie Durbin has a kind thought ever towards anything conservative. If so, I can never tell by her writing, especially as she trumped up a controversy last September, Podunk Reporter Creates Issue, Boasts of Resolution.

I saw no “counterpoint” printed in regards to that manufactured controversy and even just last week, John Laird copied it with his vitriol masked as humor, Confessions of a new Republican.

Dena has the audacity to actually state, “We have important elections coming up in 2010 and it does not serve The Columbian’s readership, the general public, or the integrity of the elections process to cause mass confusion about the process by printing inaccurate information.”

Does she really want to go there? Outright lies against President Bush and 8 years of vitriol and demeaning hatred thrown at the man by her party? Does she forget the fraud of the 2004 Washington State Governor’s election?

As far as that “important elections” goes, yes, we are watching Massachusetts very closely too and it isn’t looking all that good for their State jackasses back there right now.

Unbelievably, Horton cries, “Unfortunately, it seems as though not much has changed and our pleas for truth and fairness have fallen on deaf ears.”

Dena dear, you Democrats wouldn’t know “truth and fairness” if your donkey’s tail was bitten. We sat and watched as every sort of hatred and mean-spirited message was sent out against the GOP and President Bush.

We saw as you used the Troops and the very war your party voted to authorize as a campaign tool for political gain.

We watched as your party seized control of Congress with lies, innuendoes, subterfuge and dishonesty straight out of Saul Alinsky’s ‘Rules for Radicals.’

We watched as despicable conduct by a President from your party was excused, just to have you come back later and point fingers at others over similar “immoral” conduct.

I was at the Hilton the evening in November 2008 when a junior senator was propelled into the Presidency by playing the race card and one of your number placed the sign outside the ballroom, “The night America came together.”

None of you have yet to explain why America cannot “come together” unless a group of jackasses controls the country and continues to bankrupt us.

The whiny column written by Blue Donkeys Chair Dena Horton is indicative of spoiled little children who don’t always get their way and throws a tantrum.

If Clark GOP Chair, Ryan Hart, wrote such a column every time a leftist column appeared in the Columbian, he’d have to be on full time employ.

Americans are waking up to the ploy, Dena. I suggest you get used to not having “fair and balanced” being your point of view only!

As a famous Democrat once said, “If you can’t stand the heat, get out of the kitchen.”

I guess that was back when Democrats cared about more than remaking America into a socialist mecca and carbon copy of the failed Soviet Union.

  1. Right on, Lew. I was also raised Democrat and thought they were for the ‘working man.’ It took maturity and raising a family to see it was the Democrats who support the non-working man. Oops, non-working man and union man. Everyone else is toast.


  2. Sharon, it never ceases to amaze me how a once great party now whines and cries like little children because the other side is heard occassionally, while they are yelling every day.

    Just look at the current race in Massachusetts between Martha Coakley and Scott Brown. Obama traveled there to campaign for Coakley and all they have to stand on is, “it’s all still Bush’s fault.”

    No ideas, no values, no proposals, backroom deals instead of the transparency they boasted about and every move bankrupts the country.

    But, how Dena Horton can say there is never a counterpoint to Ann Donnelly’s every other weekly column just leaves me shaking my head.


  3. Lew,

    You are doing a great job of getting the truth out!!! Clark County has the Highest Unemployment in Washington State. with almost 14%,and with those that have fallen off the unemployment rolls and have just given up the unemployment rate is well over 15%, over 190,000 Clark county Citizens are now unemployed. We also have just about the highest home forclosure rate. Rep. Wallace has such a disconnect with the Citizens in Clark County. When asked about what she and her cohorts in Olympia are going to do to bring jobs back, her response was they are going to bring Green jobs. Intresting Rep. Wallace where are these so called Green jobs going to come from? The tax payer is going to pay for this nonsense, that will do nothing to bring jobs back to the hurting Citizens in our County. We need real private businesses for real jobs. Rep Wallace makes the statement that the School Districts create the most jobs in Clark County and pay the most taxes. Rep. Deb Wallace has such a disconnect from the private sector, that she does not have a clue that private business and all tax payers pay for all government jobs including our School Districts. Rep Wallace does not have a clue how our economy functions! Until Washington Citizens vote out all politicians like Deb Wallace our unemployment rates will continue to be out of control and Small & large businesses will continue to close or move out of Washington State, because they are not able to survive here. Needless to say with the status quoe, businesses and Entrepreneurs will not be enthusiactic to come here, or start businesses here. Washingtonians look at the Unemployment lines, empty homes and homes for sale and the businesses that have closed or moved out of the State. Let us make Changes that can turn our lives in a positive direction. Vote Deb Wallace and her cohorts out!!!


  4. In response to Chuck Miller: Yes, we do have the highest unemployment rate in the state. I’m sure you would find www. denny heckforcongress. com to be pretty interesting. Not only did he start several successful small business, he also knows the importance of education/vocational training as it relates to employment. I think it’s sad that we aren’t able to come to a bipartisan conclusion, but I realize that it’s simply the elected officials we currently have in office–24 hour news cycles are in a sense showing us “how the sausage is made”–but I do believe that the Republicans have definitely hindered progress with their record breaking year of filibustering…
    The Democrats are sometimes too weak (or empathetic), but to call them whiny “cry babies” does each party a disservice. What good comes of name calling? Why would you want to be viewed as a bully who offers no sound solutions? I am concerned about the 45-55 yr olds who are getting laid off after 20 yrs with a company–we need to punish the companies who ship our jobs out of the country, not the citizens.


  5. Hi Rebecca, even though your comment is directed towards Chuck, I’m going to comment (blog owner privilege 😉 LOL)

    Okay, back seriousness.

    You make some valid points in your comment, but I must remind you that bipartisanship cannot only be when Democrats have complete control. It has to be both ways, not just one.

    Throughout the Bush years, Democrat filibustered, demeaned and blocked many pieces of legislation that might have helped forestall some of the problems we now see. Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, for just two.

    Efforts that were tried to be put through were misrepresented, such as allowing younger citizens to privately invest a portion of their social security. It was never as portrayed of taking money away from seniors today.

    I don’t need to remind you of the personal attacks against President Bush by Democrats and all too many willing accomplices in the media, either.

    I had the privilege of meeting Denny recently and having a short and cordial discussion with him. While I find him personable and came away with a degree of respect for the man, I disagree with many of his political views.

    I don’t know about him starting “several businesses,” but do know he did start TVW, which I believe is taxpayer sponsored. I understand he made quite a bit of money with RealPlayer also, but have not heard he had anything to do with hiring of people.

    I was impressed that he agreed with David Castillo on Castillo’s idea of “enterprise zones” to help begin a recovery for small businesses.

    Consistently, Castillo and Heck give the most specifics and ideas for their views. Much more than any of the other 4 candidates. Maybe too that is why the Seattle Times has now chosen both Castillo and Heck to endorse for the primaries.

    I also understand the anger at companies that ship jobs overseas, but with every increasing taxes, government regulations and unions taking more and more from the companies, how else can they continue to supply us products at a reasonable price and make a profit to stay in business?

    Even minimum wage increases, as nice as they sound, contribute to higher business expenses that either weaken profits or end up passed along to consumers through higher prices.

    Then again, if you really wish to punish those that send jobs over seas, why not start with Massachusetts senior Democrat Senator, John ‘F’in Kerry, who recently not only skipped out on a half million dollars in taxes to the state by mooring his newly constructed yacht out of state, but “outsourced” construction that same yacht to another country.

    Just think how many union boat builders missed out on jobs by Kerry having his $7,000,000 yacht constructed in another country.

    The government cannot take care of every need. Somewhere along the line citizens must also be allowed to do their part. Education is one of them. It does no good to throw more and more money into schools when it isn’t reaching the children and powerful teachers unions block efforts to rid the schools of inadequate teachers.

    They have even blocked efforts to reward excellent teachers in some areas as well, wanting to ensure more senior teacher receive more.

    There are no easy answers to it all, but it is disingenuous for Democrats to complain about no bipartisanship when they hold all of the cards, after years and years of blocking efforts when Republicans were in charge.

    It is not bipartisanship to lock Republicans out of discussions and drafting of legislation, then demand they vote favorably on it, with no one having a clue what is in it.

    If Democrats really desire more bipartisanship, shouldn’t they begin by showing some themselves?
